. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver
have no budget from the president, in violation of the law. he gets his ncaa bracket in on time but still no budget. this is the fourth time in five years. he set a new record this year, two months with no plan, while we had trillion-dollar deficits and a debt crisis on the horizon. his party leaders, unfortunately, failing offering a serious account of our challenge. no serious plan to grow our economy or create jobs. no plan to ever balance the budget. take more. trillions of dollars more to spend more in washington. that's what got us in this mess in the first place. so what can be done? the good news is that we now have a vehicle for regular order. the democrats derailed the budget process each of the last few years and stopped governing when they stopped budgeting. at least we now have a budget process that's moving. we brought them back in the game this spring. that's a good thing. so what's going to happen in the weeks ahead? well, we will make the case for our priorities. whether the gentleman from maryland wants to acknowledge it or not, we have divided government. the

. that is under current law, the law the president supports. he changed to make that, so it is financially feasible. our program would move us in the direction of premium support, which is what members of congress have. it will allow for a certain amount of money subsidy, a benefit check, if you will, for seniors to be able to utilize that to purchase what they want for themselves so they are able to have an insurance program that is much more responsive to them. as a physician, medicare patients are having a whale of a time finding doctors to take medicare. if you are a new medicare patients and your doctor prior to the agencies the five does not take medicare patients, you have a very difficult time finding a new dr. who will take a new medicare patient. one out of every three doctors in this country have limited the number of patients they are seeing. see no of every eight medicare patients at all. the program is flawed and needs to be reformed. we need to strengthen medicare. our guest,rice is republican of georgia. we are talking about budgetary matters. the numbers are on the screen.

as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei
people. and there's a way to do this without rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law, without rewarding them for cutting in line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so those who came here legally who paid the fines, who waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there's a way to do this. and i would call it earned legalization status. >> let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, could it be that congress might actually get a little something done here? how close are lawmakers to coming up with an immigration reform plan that everyone likes or can agree to? >> i sense your skepticism because it's hard to accept congress is going to accept something. i do think, not to be polly anna here, i think you see movement on that front. there's a gang working on this in the senate. chuck schumer came out yesterday and said they are making a bunch of progress. you see republicans in opinion polls moving to where a slight majority of republicans now support some kind of immigration reform. you see the self-int
into law as soon as possible. >> woodruff: in fact, bipartisan efforts are underway in both the house and senate to craft immigration overhaul plans. details are still being hammered out, but the president today restated his goal. >> we know that really form means to continue to strengthen our border security and holding employers accountable. we know really form means providing a responsible pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants who are currently living in the shadows. really form requires modernizing the legal immigration system so that our citizens don't have to wait years before their loved ones are able to join them in america. >> woodruff: the senate's so-called gang of eight negotiators had hoped to have agreement last week on a plan that is close to the president's priorities. but a dispute arose over wages and visas for lower-skilled guest workers. if that can be resolved, lawmakers could introduce a plan after congress returns from a two-week recess. to walk us through the political state of play we're joined by reporter sarah murray who ha

[laughter] i'm delighted to have with us in this morning my successor as the new president of the heritage foundation can, senator jim demint. we're very happy you're able to join us this morning for our 17th annual lecture. i welcome you all. it's good to see so many friends here, and it's particularly happy occasion for us to be able to co--host the receptio
? >> one of the big barriers is that there are no salvage laws in space. so if the united states were to start an initiative today to clean up all the debris, we don't own it. we can't just go and get it. and, you decide, are you going to get the little pieces? that would determine if you're going to use some of the techniques like foam to catch it, or do you go for the big ones? and from a legal perspective, if i went after a big piece of junk and grappled it and it broke apart and am i then legally liable for the damage caused to rich dalbello's satellites? so there are many legal issues to be considered. and then the political and geostrategic. if, for example, you are using lasers. well, i'm certain if the united states started to start using lasers to deorbit large pieces of debris, that would make other countries of the world very nervous. just as it would legitimately make the united states very nervous if other countries were to do the same of the so i think there is just a host of not just technical problems but legal and political problems but debris and the neoissue i think
, pushing senators to make background checks on all gun sales the law. national rifle association boss wayne law peer is hitting back hard, pointing out the mayor's recent failed plan to limit sugary sodas in his own city. >> they don't want him telling what food to eat. surely they don't want him telling them what firearms to buy. >> but the assaults on the gun lobby are coming from many fronts. in newtown, connecticut, where the school massacre took place, some families are complaining they received nra robocalls like this one posted on the huffington post web site. >> your state senator will play a key role in determining whether the connecticut general assembly will pass legislation restricting your gun rights. >> and president obama is weighing in, too, using his weekly radio address to push a ban on assault weapons, a limit on the size of ammunition magazines, and stepped-up background checks. >> they're supported by a majority of the american people, and i urge the senate and the house to give each of them a vote. >> still, the chief reason we're seeing so much activity right now is t
should be legally recognized under the law. 44% say it shouldn't. in 2008 the country's support was the opposite, 53% were against it. public opinion changing quickly on this issue. for the first time, next week the supreme court will take on the issue and eventually decide whether it's the states or the federal government who have the right to define marriage. joining me is the legal director for the legal rights campaign and ryan anderson, coauthor of "what is marriage? man and woman, a defense." brian your latest op-ed for cnn.com you call this week's support of same-sex by the american academy of pediatrics a pr stunt. it's an organization of primary care pediatricians and specialists and it came out this week and said that a two-parent household is good for children, doesn't matter if it's a man and a woman, a woman and a woman, same-sex or heterosexual. >> there's no rigorous science that supports that conclusion. all of the science we have shows that mothering and fathering are distinct phenomenon and children do best with a married biological mother and father. it's amer
years. a conviction for obstruction of a law enforcement officer and five felony convictions and in 2006 convicted of assaulting a latino prison guard but nothing like what he's suspected of now, the killing of colorado's corrections director and killing of a domino pizza delivery man and high-speed chase and shootout with police in texas. >> certainly he's the focus of our investigation at this point. we do have investigators in texas. the moment that we heard about the high-speed pursuit and the shooting, we did have investigators pretty much on a plane en route to texas. >> eble had ties to a white supremacist gang. neighbors say they saw no signs of racial leanings during his rant. neighbors expressed sympathy for eble's father, a respected colorado attorney raising his two children alone. his 16-year-old daughter died in an automobile accident in 2006 and now his son has been killed under a barrage of bullets and under suspicion. >>> police say a french passenger failed to get a business class seat but instead succeeded in entering the cockpit while posing as a pilot. he never took
that the universe was a mass produced toy tossed by a goddess they no longer wondered by laws was sure in the clockwork in a wind up bird were shot with uncertainties. optimists contributed the reason to the fact that the toy was broken. pessimists acknowledged this. but insistd that in it's broken state could the cosmos belong to those who lives within. the goddess grown found the universe under board games in a closet. she did not give it to her children. she did not have it fixed by her husband instead slipping away now and then from her family she delighted in the haphazard way it ran. the release in her life. >> the next one is entitled. explanation. twisted tree branches explain exactly themselves. the next is called, a simple story. his love was too simple. if he met a woman who imagined what it would it be like to be her husband. he learned she was already attached. if she did interest in him he would bring her fresh oranges. she'd leave him certain that no man could love truly to such scant evidence. his evidence was not meager he was not trying to judge her. his love was too
? >> cocaine for one. >> t.j., law enforcement officials are calling ebel former 211 gang member. i read past statements by the head of the gang task force saying once a gang member joins its group, you don't really get out in any way other than getting killed. do you buy that? is that kind of hype? >> oh, no, i don't buy that he's a former member. i mean, lot of times this is the stuff that's for life. i got out, when you get out, you've got to prove yourself, you've got to be working with law enforcement, talk to them in some way, shape or form or trying to get other kids out. there's no evidence proving this guy's done any of that. >> why do you think they would be calling him a former gang member, then? >> because a lot of times when a guy leaves prison, a lot of institutions basically start to refer to them as former. if they don't get in any trouble in six months, even up to a year, they basically take him off the list. they take him off the radar. a lot of times these guys come back later on. you can stay quiet for six months to a year if you're on probation or parole. >> t.j., i appre
